Everything is Going to be K.O.: An illustrated memoir of living with specific learning difficultiesby Kaiya Stone

A hilarious and heartfelt illustrated memoir of living with specific learning difficulties.

In Everything is Going to be K.O., Kaiya Stone writes about her experiences of living with specific learning difficulties: from struggling at school, to being diagnosed with dyslexia and dyspraxia at university, and performing her own one-woman stand up show inspired by her journey.

Always funny and unfailingly honest, Kaiya not only outlines the frustrations of having SpLDs, but also the ways in which they have fuelled her creativity. She calls for neurodiversity to be celebrated so that instead of questioning how we are 'supposed' to think, we instead take pride in our cognitive differences.

Everything is Going to be K.O. is for anyone who knows, or has wondered, what it is like to live with learning difficulties today.

Kaiya Stone is a writer, performer, and director who likes to tell stories any way she can. She snuck her way out of Yorkshire into the hallowed halls of Oxford University only to discover that she had many undiagnosed learning difficulties. She turned this experience it into a one-woman show which debuted at the Theatre Royal Stratford East and then ran at Edinburgh Festival 2018. Everything is Going to be K.O. is her first book.

The author made a short film about her experiences with her adult diagnosis. Across all platforms it has over 25k views.

The author has been featured by the Guardian, i, Metro, Evening Standard and the BBC.
